Untitled Memories

Memory, at once beautifully inviting yet impossibly elusive becomes a constructed existence. Although based upon real experiences, our memories fail to accurately replicate actual events and places. Instead, memories become fuzzy landscapes in our minds – consisting of overlapping and accumulative experiences that we collectively grasp at in our attempts to combat the effects of loss.

Through the use of in camera double exposures I have constructed panoramic landscapes. These landscapes do not exist in reality, yet they are representations of the subject being portrayed. The soft focus and overlapping of the image is meant to replicate the experience of memory over time, depicting the constructed perceptions of people and places that we create.
